Expensive. But you pay for location. Rooms are tired, bathrooms are in need of repair but the beds are comfortable. Don't ask for a late check out, even if you are prepared to pay up front. The manager won't allow it until the day you are due to leave to confirm or deny the request. Then she wanted a full...

We reserved a street view room and they did not give us a street view room. We were not told the hotel was doing renovations. A pool view room is totally deferent then a street view room when you're going to the city, for the city experience.

We visited this hotel for three nights during our trip to San Francisco. The hotel is very centrally located to the main union square area and train station and has plenty of shops, bars and restaurants close by. Although dated in parts, the hotel was clean and very comfortable. Free wifi, air conditioning and a fridge and safe in the...

Excellent location, helpful staff, good amenities. However given the cost of this hotel I was disappointed there was no complimentary water, no bath robe, no slippers in the room. The view from the window was of a concrete wall and a metal shaft. As there are only wooden blinds and no curtains, daylight shone through the blinds in the morning....

Stayed with fam for one night. Had a corner room right on street in the older part of the hotel. Comfy room -smallish but fine for a short visit. Definitely loud but not really an issue for us. The location really can't be beat! Would stay again based on this alone.

He contacted the hotel and they were wonderful and we were greeted by the Manager (owner) and gifted with a hamper and room upgrade. It was such a lovely stay...

An excellent Hotel, perfectly located just near Union Square, local tourist buses leave from nearby and the cable car is just around the corner for a short trip to Fishermans Wharf. The Hotel is well appointed, we had a King Supreme room in the newer section of the Hotel at the rear. No views but a good quiet comfortable location....

My husband and I stayed 1 night. Very good location if you want to be near Union Square. Powell stop on Bart is not too far, but it a bit of a trek with luggage. Nice big rooms. Woke up to banging and construction noise. We called to see what was going on with no response or explaination. When we...

Stayed here for 3 nights on business. As you walk out the main doors turn right towards Union Square and the nicer part of town. Left is fine if you don't mind a few homeless people and it's daylight. Rooms were dated but super clean and everything was just as it should be. Room service solid and quick. Pricey, but...
